  1. therealkat :: driver picks the tunes

    I'm back from Baltimore! So tired... but here we go. Goal One :: Les Mills Combat 2x Per Week Week 0 :: Monday - No - hard to do while traveling. Week 0 :: Tuesday - No - hard to do while traveling. Week 0 :: Wednesday - No - hard to do while traveling. Week 0 :: Thursday - No - hard to do while traveling. Goal Two :: Log 8 Miles Per Week - do my conference miles above my usual total count here? I think they do... Week 0 :: Monday - 2 extra miles Week 0 :: Tuesday - 3 extra miles Week 0 :: Wednesday - 7 extra miles (including a 3.5 mile run!!) Week 0 :: Thursday - 2 extra miles Goal Three :: 1600 Cals Net Week 0 :: Monday - I didn't honestly try that hard at the conference since you sort of get what they feed you. Week 0 :: Tuesday - Conference food. Week 0 :: Wednesday - Conference food. Week 0 :: Thursday - Conference food. Goal Four :: 64oz Water Daily Week 0 :: Monday - No... something like 30 though.

    Goal One :: Les Mills Combat 2x Per Week Week 0 :: Sunday - Not today, but we'll get there. Goal Two :: Log 8 Miles Per Week Week 0 :: Sunday - I ran 2.3 miles and I feel stupidly sore. I hate starting over... Goal Three :: 1600 Cals Net Week 0 :: Sunday - I tried until about dinner time and then I gave up. But it's week 0 and that's ok. I know where I fell short. Goal Four :: 64oz Water Daily Week 0 :: Sunday - No - I actually don't recall intentionally drinking ANY water. Yikes. Stretch Goal :: Use My Standing Desk for 1 Hour a Work Day Week 0 :: Sunday - Not a work day

    I mean week I am in Baltimore for a conference, so no standing... but that’s why it’s week 0, right?...

    Likewise! I’m on season 10 right now. Even when this show misses, it’s still so enjoyable because the cast just loves each other.

    I’m pretty close to making a deal with a Crossroads Demon to get back on track here, so I’m recruiting Sam and Dean to keep me from selling my soul before I’m too tempted. The Edinburgh Half Marathon in May 26th, 2019. I WILL be there and I WILL be faster and I WILL be fitter. I’m not going to let this slide! Goal One :: Les Mills Combat 2x Per Week I am trying to find something more than where I am. I always liked the stress relief of LMC, so I’m going to try it out again. The plan right now is to do LMC Monday and Wednesday. I don’t want to wake the house up, so I plan to do this in the basement via my phone and bluetooth headphones. We’ll see how that works. Goal Two :: Log 8 Miles Per Week I need to start getting my mile time down and miles in for half marathon training in November. I am committing to two runs a week, preferably in the morning before work, but I can also do on during the week and one on the weekend (or get a bonus one in if I’m feeling up to it). The goal is to log 8 miles per week, so this means I’ll also need to get back to my lunchtime walks at work, which will be healthy in getting me away from my computer. I’m also paying myself a $1 per killometer that I run, so that will help fund the trip in 2019 as well! Goal Three :: 1600 Cals Net I’ve worked out that this is about where I would need to be to maintain my weight when I reach my goal again. So I plan to start eating this way now, as it will be a deficit from where I am at, helping me to reach that goal. Goal Four :: 64oz Water Daily Pretty self explanatory -- keeping up my last stretch goal. I definitely feel better when I am drinking more water, and with extra activity I will need it. So here we go. Bottoms up. Stretch Goal :: Use My Standing Desk for 1 Hour a Work Day I literally never do this. So this is my Stretch Goal this challenge. I don’t care if it’s split to two thirty minute sessions, but 1 hour a day at my desk should be with the standing option. Who’s Ready To Do This?!

    Main Quest: Reduce Mile Time and Decrease Weight/Body Measurements GOAL ONE: Veronica Lodge Run 3 days a week, any distance 1 mile or more. Veronica certainly has the moves. And I want to keep on moving. GOAL TWO: Kevin Keller Keep lifting. Kettlebells 3 times a week Kevin aptly notices that over the summer, Archie may have gotten a little bit of muscle. Maybe if I keep lifting, someone will exclaim “Kat got HOT!” at me out the window of Pop’s… GOAL THREE: Jughead Jones Track calories and macros - stay within a 4% variance with macros of 30% fat and protein, 40% carbs 5 out of 7 days a week. It’s about balance, right? We can’t all stuff our faces with burgers like Jughead and remain metabolically sound. GOAL FOUR: Cheryl Blossom Stretch hip, legs, and shoulders for 15 minutes twice a week. Cheryl is fantastic as stretching the truth and manipulation, which is why she’s the mascot for my stretching goal. SIDE QUEST: Archie Andrews Practice guitar 30 minutes a week. Archie chases his dream of being a musician, no matter what. He’s my role model for this goal. I miss it; and I need more time doing what I love. STRETCH GOAL: Betty Cooper Drink 1,600 ounces of water during this challenge Betty is the picture of responsibility and responsible adults drink their water.
